houlton maine: The Chamber Brothers Had A Song, A Long One, "Time Has Come Today". - 06/05/10 11:52 PM
When I worked at a small Houlton Maine radio station in high school the studios were across the US Rt 1 from York's Dairy Bar. A place where fried clam dinners, onion rings made with pancake batter called your name like sirens.
So when I would place a food order and being all alone at the station on a weekend or evening shift, I was well aware of time ticking by. The place had car hop, lights on for service. But I was a few more than 30 feet from the front of the take out summer ice cream and fried food factory. … (13 comments)

     Actual real estate brokers are pretty well versed on lots of topics. There is the usual legal, financing, marketing, copy writing skills we pick up on.

We try to deal with folks in a forced sale, that lost their job, that have juvenile delinquent kids with emotional problems that do damage with power tools to take out their frustrations or … (4 comments)

     You grew up or have spent most of your life in a small town with little or no crime, one stop light holding back little traffic near the Walmart or hospital. And then like a blink of your eye, more activity and someone turned up the volume on crime, traffic, heavy duty restrictive zoning and that knock at your door is the lawn police. You should have mowed last evening because now you have your second warning about the length of your grass. The neighbors have measured and you the hick that hangs your clothes out, leaves your garage door … (2 comments)

houlton maine: Real Estate Office Design And Location - Like Yours Or What Would You Change? - 03/21/09 12:18 AM
     I commute 32 feet to work.  Where is your real estate office? In your car? Way in the back on the second floor and easy or hard to find? Initially we were a Strout Realty agent and located the office on our family farm. It worked out great because so much of what we do is list and sell Maine farms and land. It makes you creditable to sell that type of real estate if you own and have the same type of real estate your self that the buyer is after. Houlton Maine has a rural nature like much … (5 comments)

All your website, blog, podcast, your dog and pony show is homes, listings, but not area information. The reader, viewer, listener digests the property information. But the home, cottage or land sounds like everyone other else's on line / brochure write up on property. What is the unique AREA the property is located in all about?
